Liberalism – never a PERSONAL responsibility

by Skip March 29, 2016

After all, the good Samaritan PERSONALLY attended to the victim and PERSONALLY paid the cost for the victim and PERSONALLY checked in on him.  Progressives showed us, via enacting Obamacare, that they are all too willing to trade individual involvement for outsourcing that responsibility to “the collective”.  Which, as we all know, means no one […]

Notable Quote – Chan Eddy

by Skip January 4, 2016

This is something I’ve known for a long time: Liberalism is an ideology of insanity. Of course I am speaking of liberalism in its present form, which is really Progressivism, a political ideology that works very hard to ignore human nature or to corrupt it through ‘education’ (which has failed again and again), indoctrination (which […]

A Religion Without God

by Steve MacDonald November 6, 2015
Thumbnail image for A Religion Without God

Modern liberalism is best understood as a movement of would-be believers in search of true faith. For much of the 20th century it was faith in History, especially in its Marxist interpretation. Now it’s faith in the environment. Each is a comprehensive belief system, an instruction sheet on how to live, eat and reproduce, a […]

Liberals aren’t Liberals. Progressives aren’t either

by Skip October 25, 2015

And yet we see THREE such Socialists running (again, counting the one already in the Oval Office) to rule this county that perports to be one where the Individual is supposed to be valued over Government.  Reformatted, emphasis mine: “Beginning in the late nineteenth century, and especially after 1930 in the United States, the term […]

Heh! A liberal is….

by Skip July 23, 2015

From American Thinker: A liberal is someone who thinks tax increases on businesses are paid out of the secret stash of cash all businesses hide in their basements. A liberal is someone who wants stricter gun control but has armed bodyguards. A liberal is someone who wants guns out of honest citizens’ hands but who […]

Notable Quote – Diann Russell

by Susan Olsen May 26, 2015

“The only way, let me repeat that, the only way Liberalism can advance is through the tireless work of the Enslaved Press which promotes the Liberal agenda, gives a patina of mainstream to the kookiest of Liberal ideas, acts as human shield to even the most corrupt Liberal politicians, and serves as hit squad to […]

Progressivism – was never about being “Liberal”; cozying up to Totalitarianism

by Skip April 8, 2015

An observation from Steven Hayward on RFRA, Indiana, Memories Pizza, the tipping point of the absorption of the private sector by Government – and the unmasking of the Left for who they really are (emphasis mine): The “end of liberalism” can be taken to have two meanings, reflecting the ambiguity of both “end” and “liberalism.” […]

Notable Quote – Leo Strauss

by Skip April 8, 2015

Liberalism stands or falls by the distinction between state and society, or by the recognition of a private sphere, protected by the law but impervious to the law, with the understanding that, above all, religion as particular religion belongs to the private sphere. Just as certainly as the liberal state will not “discriminate” against its […]

One of our upcoming guests this week is Ann Cocoran from the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog.  There are a number of excellent resources at the site, including the EAGLE Forum report on how mass legal immigration is certain doom for a Conservative Republican party.  (Phyllis Schlafly founded Eagle Forum, by the way.) Certain doom?  Yes, […]

Chin up, bucko! It may not be as bad as it seems

by Skip April 16, 2014

Andrew Breitbart said that politics is downstream from culture – in other words, the culture changes the mores of the population which changes political leanings.  We on the Right oft bemoan the capture of the educational system, the Hollywood movie / TV industry, the music industry, and the media in general, by the Left.  One […]

Dogs and Guns and Democrats…Oh My!

People who are unfamiliar with dogs or have never owned one, are more likely to be intimidated or even afraid of them.   While people who are familiar with dogs, grew up with them or own a dog, understand them, know how to read their signals, and have the sense to have some respect for what they are capable […]

Liberalism and progressivism are addictions

by Susan Olsen November 3, 2013

Think of a couple of Progressives that you know here in NH and see if this doesn’t fit… ‘It’s as powerful as heroin or cocaine. It supplies a terrific high: all sense of personal failure, betrayal, guilt, ineffectiveness, irrelevance, of being nothing and nobody, disappears in a flash. Instead our hero feels extraordinarily good about […]

Abortion: Killing on behalf of the ideologies and policies of liberals and the state they’ve created.

by Tim Condon April 14, 2013

From Sultin Knish, a blog by Daniel Greenfield, “Violence On Their Behalf.” For the pro-abortion movement, it has come to this. Greenfield explains that those who love and fight for unlimited abortion are kind of like arsonists, but… Most arsonists don’t set their own houses on fire. Most liberal policies don’t affect liberals. Yet this […]

Get In the Zone At Autozone And Be Anti-Second Amendment

“Liberalism is an elite person’s psychological investment in enjoying a guilt-free affluence.”

by Skip October 30, 2012

Victor Davis Hanson, one of the best observers of the political and popular culture (and its decline) from a Classical Western Liberalism (as opposed to today’s rampant Political Liberalism which is more authoritarian / communitarian), has another wicked corker out Romney almost forfeited the election when a video was leaked about his honest, though inexact, […]

As the culture turns: What is cool? (Hint: It ain’t liberals and modern liberalism….)

by Tim Condon June 21, 2012

This from Roger Simon at PJ Media, who collars those who still think modern liberalism (aka statism) is cool. It’s not, and hasn’t been for some time. Everyone with the proverbial IQ above room temperature has come to the same conclusion. While that’s interesting, what is far more interesting is the political cohort that Simon fingers as […]
